First U.S. Face Transplant Complete
from BBC
Surgeons at a clinic in a Cleveland, Ohio, have performed America's first almost-total face transplant. The reconstructive surgeon in charge of the operation - Dr Maria Siemionow - replaced 80% of a woman's face with that of a dead female donor. The patient's name and age have not been released. The Cleveland transplant is only the fourth to be carried out. Two operations have been conducted in France and one in China. More

Micro-Fractional Ablative Skin Resurfacing with Two Novel Erbium Laser Systems
from PCI Journal
Treatment of photoaged skin with ablative lasers has been shown to produce clinically efficacious results in a number of studies. However, these procedures are painful, have significant downtime and adverse side effects such as infection, pigment alterations, long-lasting erythema, and scarring. Fractional non-ablative treatments have been useful in treating conditions such as mild to moderate rhytides (wrinkles), photo damaged skin, acne scarring, leucodermic scars, melasma, and non-facial skin rejuvenation. Investigators have reported re-epithelization in 24 hours with fractional treatments thereby reducing downtime for the patient. The effect of Er:YAG (2940 nm) and Er:YSGG (2790 nm) lasers were compared in order to optimize ablative fractional device parameters for new treatment regimens. More

Less Invasive Plastic Surgery Options May Be Beneficial
from El Paso Times
Given today's busy lifestyle and hectic schedule, it is often difficult or impossible to arrange a week to recover from a procedure. This is part of the reason that less invasive options have become so popular over the last decade. In 2007, 4.6 million people had Botox injections, over 1 million had a hyaluronic acid filler, over 1 million had a chemical peel, and laser hair removal and microdermabrasion were each performed more than 1 million times each in 2007. It is true that nothing compares with the effects that can be obtained with a face-lift, brow lift or blepharoplasty, but there are many less invasive options which can take years off your face.
